Eight Sows and Piglets on Snow

Sows and Piglets Waking on a Snowy Day

These eight sows and their 92 piglets are on paddock ten of the upper fields in a grove of trees. The brush and trees provide wind protection. They actually could be deeper under the evergreens but like this spot because the sun shines in making it a good place to loaf.

Recently the snow has started to build up. We’ll be weaning these soon and moving them all down to the south field plateau region.

Outdoors: 34°F/22°F Sunny
Tiny Cottage: 59°F/56°F

Daily Spark: If you save something and wait long enough you’ll find out what is important or not, or you’ll forget.

    if my calculations are correct, this is 11-1/2 piglets per sow. that is amazing. and all 92 little ones look hale and hearty. well, okay, the ones I could see in the photo. I had an Uncle in the late 1950s/early 1960 here in the Midwest that raised hogs and he’d have been pleased with 11-1/2 average piglets per Mama sow.
